The nature of the physical boundaries of residential developments may reflect urban history, vernacular traditions and social conditions. This paper examines the urban design characteristics of gated enclaves in Barbados. The analysis illustrates that the quality and opacity of boundary treatments varies with the income level of neighbouring residential areas. Gating in Barbados reflects a development process complicit in transforming traditional urban forms into globalized neo-colonial urban design.
